A Gym for the Mind.

Fabrication Lab

Idea Fab Labs are member-driven creation zones located in Chico and Santa Cruz, California. The Idea Fab Labs Chico facility is a 6,900 sq. ft. building, four blocks from CSU, Chico with multiple workspaces, access to standard and high-tech tools, a gallery, indoor and outdoor areas for group activities, and an active community of makers, designers, artists, programmers and more.


Meet and collaborate with people who are interested in electronics, programming and future-art. Idea Fab Labs is an open source, do-it-yourself culture! We facilitate educational classes and workshops including weekly scheduled Safety and Basic Use classes as well as a rotating catalog of offerings on more advanced and specialized topics, including guest teachers.
